On Narrative and Voids: Nate Young In Conversation

THE SEEN Editors, The Seen, April 30, 2020

Through his new body of work presented at moniquemeloche, the conceptual artist Nate Young mines his own family archives to explore and question the nature of identification, history, and the significance of ritual as a means to instill authority. Stephanie Cristello joined Young as he spoke through the process behind his recently-mounted solo exhibition Transcendence of Time and presents a preview of the pieces to be included in his upcoming two-person exhibition A Tale of Today at the Driehaus Museum. Young and Cristello discussed how the artist’s narrative-based sculpture investigates the illusion of time, and how its nature seems more malleable than ever in the current climate.
